S Korea`s top prosecutor resigns over sex scandal

South Korea`s chief prosecutor announced Friday he has stepped down amid sex and bribery scandals within the prosecution service.



Seoul: South Korea`s chief prosecutor announced Friday he has stepped down amid sex and bribery scandals within the prosecution service.

"As the prosecutor general, I offer my apology to the people for the huge shock and disappointment," Prosecutor General Han Sang-dae said at a press conference, Yonhap reported. His term was due to end in 2014.

His resignation follows allegations against a junior prosecutor of having sex with a female suspect he was questioning earlier this month.
In a separate case, a senior prosecutor was arrested for allegedly taking bribes from businessmen worth thousands of dollars.

President Lee Myung-bak immediately accepted Han`s resignation, saying "the prosecution needs to reflect on itself".
